Physical

Clothing & Accessories

Coloration Palette

  • Description:
Soledad was never a particularly large Eurasian wolf, due to the influence of her Iberian wolf genes. As she has grown older, her frame has become more fragile, and she has shrunk a little.
Also, unmistakeably a Eurasian wolf, with a pale undercoat and coarse copper brown, tawny fur depending on the season, her colouring is influenced by the distinctive cream stripes on her muzzle from her Iberian heritage. Dark brown fur runs along her spine down to the tip of her tail. In optime form she has dark brown hair. In older age her coat has softened and there is increasingly white on the tip of her tail, along her nose and specks on her forehead.
Her eyes are a warm grey with a hint of blue to the edges.
  • Optime Hair: Dark brown, when cared for her hair is often loosely braided. It isn't always cared for.
  • Build and Size:
Slender and fragile to look at, with clear signs of aging, including in her gait. She prefers optime form for stationary activity, but secui or lupus form for travelling as she's not always the most stable on two legs. She looks particularly fragile in optime form, but much less so in secui form. Due to age, she has lost a littl of her original height, especially in optime form.
  • Lupus : 70 cm ↔ 30 kg

Sexuality

Soledad is a widow twice over. Her relationships have predominantly been with males, although she has had occassioanl romances with women.

5.  History


Youth

Duration:

SEP 2010 - 2014

Ranks:

La Niña, La Escriba

Soledad is quite sure she had a comfortable life when she was a puppy. She has some memories of her family who lived, when she was young, in an old, abandoned village in the north of Spain, not far from the coast. Her extended family included a number of traders who worked crossing from the Iberian Peninsula to southern England and Ireland. As such, her family from time to time hosted a number of English-speaking visitors from whom she learnt that language. Therefore, her English includes British phraseology.
As a young wolf, she often travelled with members of her extended family, and lived a somewhat nomadic existence, returning home for stretches of time, but often associating with the multicultural and interspecies groups that could be met at ports and along trading routes.
